3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others
Having been a QL fan for many years I looked forward with anticipation to reading this book, the only one in the series I had not read. Although the premise started off very good and the storyline of Sam leaping into twins was a novel idea if ever I had heard one, I soon discovered that the letdown of this story is the characters themselves.

Having been a QL fan for many years I looked forward with anticipation to reading this book, the only one in the series I had not read. Although the premise started off very good and the storyline of Sam leaping into twins was a novel idea if ever I had heard one, I soon discovered that the letdown of this story is the characters themselves.
Although Sam's character is well wrote and the author does well to split the personality traits of our much loved hero, it is the character of Al that was the disappointment. The Al that we all know and love is never present throughout the story, replaced instead with someone who is constantly angry and seems to be shouting at everyone all the time. Gone is the colour and flair of our beloved hologram pretty much until we finally get a much desired return in the last chapter, the only part of the book that I actually recognised the character as the one from the weekly shows.
Apart from this little downfall however, the story does raise some interesting questions, especially about Sam's continued participation in his leaping. Not a patch on other works in the series, especially Pulitzer, but for a die hard fan of the series well worth the read anyone, just to see Sam become a rebel without a cause.
